J. Cole UK Headline Tour + Tinie Tempah support.

Street August 26, 2011 Music Comments Off

US rap sensation J. Cole is set to embark on his first ever headline UK tour in November to celebrate the release of his debut album ‘Cole World: The Sideline Story’ available September 26th.

J. Cole is the first signing to Jay Z’s Roc Nation label and the 24 year old North Carolina native is turning his back on the champagne popping, auto-tuned bling of current times, and making a long awaited return to real Hip Hop. With a return to a more raw sound and a realer message, comes promise of a new day in Hip Hop music.

The surrounding hype and driving momentum behind Cole is impossible to ignore – both stateside and here on UK shores. The video for the huge track “Who Dat” amassed in excess of 4.6 million VEVO views in 3 weeks and has racked up 57, 562 UK youtube views; quite a feat for any artist but especially for one who hasn’t even released an official single yet.

Fans can check out Cole on the below dates in November:

FRIDAY 11 LONDON ELECTRIC BALLROOM

SATURDAY 12 BIRMINGHAM INSTITUTE

SUNDAY 13 CARDIFF SOLUS

MONDAY 14 SOUTHAMPTON UNIVERSITY
